am having a "horrible" day today. Once of the worst ever. My cousin who is my next door neighbor has always been very opinionated and hostile. I am a "no conflict" kind of a gal, so I usually stay away from him and just smile and saw hello when I see him. I had the occasion to visit with him today and he yelled and screamed at me in such an ugly manner....that's never happened to me before and it ruined my day. One of the things he yelled at me about was that my son is the way he is "ODD" because of me and my husband. That it is our fault that we didn't discipline him the right way. He brought all this up for no reason and we both got into a screaming match. I never scream except for when I'm screaming at my son. Then my son comes home today and does the usual that he has done for the past 3 years of his school career (he is in 1st grade now - started out in grade K, was kicked out of our Catholic school due to behavior and went to public school; did so badly they had him repeat grade K in special ed. class. Now he is in 1st grade spec. ed. and the year is almost up. He continues to cry and scream and yell and defy us when its time to do homework. My patience is wearing down. I told my husband tonight that I'm about to give up with homework - if I do, he'll make all F's forever more. I am in a low place right now. I am so mad at my son right now I told him that I would feed him and take care of his needs but I will not smile at him or pay attention to him until he turns his behavior around. Any advice would be most appreciated.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
